Developer of ProField®, the award-winning mobile workforce management technology used for Smart Metering deployments
Outcome Capital is pleased to announce that Sun Capital Partners has acquired Smart Grid Solutions (“SGS”), the installation services division of the privately-held engineering and technology firm based in Herndon, Virginia. Outcome Capital served as exclusive financial advisor to Smart Grid Solutions. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
SGS is the developer of ProField®, the award-winning mobile workforce management technology used for Smart Metering deployments. ProField allows a utility to provision, deploy and track the installation of smart grid technologies, including smart meters as well as the supporting communications network devices. SGS licenses ProField to installers worldwide, but also uses the technology for managing its own meter replacement and network equipment installation services.
The total number of metered endpoints for electricity, gas and water worldwide amounts to 2.9 billion. Demand for smart meters has experienced strong growth over the last five years and is expected to grow exponentially over the next 5 – 10 years. This growth is driven by governments and utilities adopting Smart Grid technology as a means to: (a) better manage power, water and gas distribution and controlling costs, (b) conserve resources under mandated “green” initiatives, and/or (c) prevent power theft and fraud in emerging countries.
